Copper Roof Copula Concord MA
For this new construction project, the cupola was built on-site in historic Concord, Massachusetts. It was then transferred to the shop for the copper to be clad to the roof. A design change was made along the way: The original intention to add a weather vane to the top of the cupola was changed to fitting the top with a simple point.

|Inside the shop.|
|You can see that the builder had some trouble bringing the seam of the plywood together on the hips.|
|We fabricated sheet metal to form the hips to give us a solid base for the copper hips.|
|We then covered the structure with high temp ice and water shield.|
|Installation of the slip sheet to complete the underlayments.|
|Beginning the fabrication and installation of the copper panels.|
|Working the seams.|
|Finishing up the panels and seams. Note the gloves being worn so as not to leave oxidation marks on the finished product.|
|Ready for transportation to the site.|
|Cupola installed and in place, with a top point added. Another happy client!|
